A former lieutenant governor and former BP executive believe they have a quicker and cheaper way to ship North Slope natural gas by delivering it from the Arctic to Asian markets on ice breakers.

It could also overtake the state-backed $44 billion AKLNG project that calls for an 800-mile pipeline to Nikiski before it would be sold overseas.
